Cycling, we are fortunate enough to be on the most popular route in Stockholm for cycling with easy hills quiet roads and beautiful nature. We have several bicycles we can loan our guests.

Swimming, Ekerö has some of the best beachs in the Stockholm area. There are many  beach’s to choose from in Ekerö Kommun these are just three of them that are local to the house.
A beach that is ideal for parents with small children is Karlskär, this is a small public beach ten minutes drive away or if you are more adventerous, a 40 min bike ride or a short direct bus ride from outside the house.
A beach that is nearer is Bromma Gård, this beach is more suited to adults as it’s a natural beach which can be unsuitable for small children because of the sloping rocks into the water and uneven bottom.. Approximately a 20 minute walk away or 5 minutes with a bike. A larger public beach Stockbybadet can be found in our local village of Stenhamra which is only a 15 minute drive away.
